Kuopio Campus Library
The collections of the Kuopio Campus Library represent the disciplines of the campus. Indeed, medicine, natural sciences and pharmacy are strongly represented in the librarys collections. Electronic scientific journals and databases acquired through FinELib or by other agreements play an important role in the library's collections and they also constitute the foundations of the librarys current scientific materials. Materials which are older and in less frequent use are being actively moved from the campus library to the National Repository Library. The campus librarys own storage contains printed periodical publications mainly from the year 1990 onwards. The library also serves as an archive for publications and academic theses completed on the Kuopio Campus of the University of Eastern Finland.
